From Jeff Kaplan’s post in another thread (Mr Kaplan is an IA staff):

we're well aware that, to be generous, OCR is less than perfect. and you're correct that at scale we would not be able to manually review or correct the abbyy OCR. at this point the main suggestions are to crowdsource (which we do not have the manpower to manage) or have interested folks upload corrected files to new items and use good metadata so that the corrected file items appear high in search results.
